Lorraine Gala Lewis is a distinguished artist and member of the Institute of American Indian Art's Foundation Board. IAIA is a nationally known art school specializing in Native American arts here in Santa Fe and Lorraine agreed to paint a coat for Singular to help support IAIA. Singular Couture has agreed to donate the proceeds from the sale of this very special coat to IAIA's scholarship fund!
If you are a supporter of Native Arts or art in general you can purchase this amazing coat and help an artist get an education at the same time. We believe in supporting our local arts community and hope that special someone will fall in love with "Water Is Life" and reach out to support our artists with this coat.
Lorraine has painted a stunning design of perfectly rendered spirals in luminous silver, suggestive of the movement of water. This is set against a diagonal zig zag pattern along the hem, while 3 beautiful dragonflies dance among the swirling lines. Water is sacred to the native peoples of the American southwest, where is meant life or death in the arid desert landscape. This coat celebrates that sacredness with beauty and tradition, yet with a contemporary look.
